"Thank you for gifting me with this amazing laptop it has been a lifesaver for me since I’ve been in college. Many of my friends stay at the library till closing due to the fact that they don’t have one which only makes me more grateful. I gravely appreciate the computer it makes life so much easier. Not only as a student but as a future entrepreneur. It’s allowed me to make logos, design business cards and create flyers."
"I just wanted to take a minute and tell you Thank you so much for your generous gift of a brand new laptop for the new school year.
